A 1930's aerial of West Hollywood:

Can you locate Hancock Ave. E_R?

The large facility in the lower portion of the photo is the Los Angeles Riding Academy, which fronted what is now Beverly Boulevard on property now occupied by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Here's a closer look at the center of the photograph:

1. Victor Ponet estate (an early major landowner in the area)
2. back of a north-facing building in Sunset Plaza
3. steeple of St. Victor’s Catholic Church on Holloway Drive (Ponet donated the land and funds to build it. The original church was rebuilt in the 1960's.)
4. Hancock Avenue
5. Palm Avenue
6. Horn Avenue and Shoreham Heights
7. Sherman Trolley Yards
